Healthy Apple Crisp is a delicious fall dessert. Warm apples, cinnamon, and a slightly sweet crumble on top pair perfectly in this cozy, paleo treat. Thank you to the Kodak Moments App for sponsoring this post.
There have been so many awesome things happening over the past few weeks. I’m super happy to share that after months of searching, we just found our first apartment! We move in next week and I’m counting down the days in excitement! I’m also super excited that it’s finally starting to feel like fall! Even though it’s technically still summer – fall will be here in just a few days, and I CAN’T wait. Fall is easily my favorite season. I love the cooler weather, fall foods, and fall activities! We always do lot’s of fun things in the fall like go to football games, have bonfires, go on long hikes..etc…but my favorite fall activity has always been apple picking.
We have a really awesome local orchard that has pick-your-own fruit basically year round. I picked these raspberries a few weeks ago and made the best fresh raspberry sauce with them. They just opened up their apple orchards last week, and I couldn’t wait to go. When I was little I would go apple picking every single year with my mom, brother + friends. Sometimes we would go two or three times in a season… but we would always go at least once right when the orchards opened. When we got home.. It was straight to the kitchen to bake with the apples! My mom would always make baked apples, and sometimes we would have something different like apple crisp or an apple pie.
I was recently looking back at old pictures and laughed when I found this one of me posing at the Apple Orchard. I had to send it to my mom via the Kodak Moments App. You’ve heard me talk about this app before – and I seriously love it! You can send pictures to family and friends privately, or you can share them on your profile for everyone to see – it’s so fun!
She should’ve known then that 20 years later I would still be super excited to bake things… and always making a mess of her kitchen! When we picked apples the other day, I knew exactly what I wanted to make with them – a healthier apple crisp. There’s seriously nothing that screams fall more than a big warm bowl of sweet apples covered in a crumbly topping!
Traditional apple crisp has a ton of butter and sugar in it – but I’ve found that it doesn’t really need it! The apples are naturally super sweet, and the crumb topping can easily be made with a substitute like coconut oil + almond butter. It still tastes amazing, and it has less of the things you don’t really need in it! The Apple Crisp is paleo, gluten free, and vegan! Plus… it only takes about 15 minutes to make (Amen to easy desserts..right friends?!)
- 2 granny smith apples, sliced
- ⅓ c almond flour
- 3 tablespoons almond butter

- Mix together almond flour, almond butter, ½ tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp coconut flour, honey, vanilla extract in a separate bowl until it begins to form a crumb topping.

What are your favorite fall activities? I’m already looking forward to going apple picking again in a couple weeks. I’m going to make sure we get a really great picture + then order it on a canvas on the Kodak Moment’s App. It’s going to look so cute hanging in our new living room 🙂
